Porto will be without their starting midfielder Danilo for the Champions League knockout stage with Liverpool, the Echo report.
You can take a punt on the game with the best Champions League knockout stage betting odds, here.
The battler injured his ankle last night in the Portuguese Cup and will be out for at least a month.
Danilo is an automatic starter for our European opponents, who’ll be significantly weaker without the 26-year-old’s presence.
Following the defeats to Swansea and West Brom, we need a strong Champions League run – which means getting past Porto at least.
Our victory in 2005 seems a very long time ago now, but Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool can beat anybody on our day.
The two-legged format could suit us, considering our ability to score a number of goals during purple patches in games – although our leaky defence means we can lose ties quickly as well.
We’ll have to face the Europeans without Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge, as well, of course.
